Congratulations used to take place directly after ceremony. Spontaneous and from the heart, you cannot plan it in details. It just starts and it is full of emotions. Family and friend needs to share their feelings with newlyweds and wish them all the best. It takes 20 to 30 minutes, big wedding needs even more time. We focus to get the pictures of your closest family what is usually but not always on the beginning. What we like on congratulations is that people do not act, do not pose they are just natural. You would never get the result if you ask them to do it again. From heart to heart it is best and lovely. There is no difference between Slovak and Austrian wedding at this point. Gallery below shows typical photos taken during congratulations.
